Robert makes the right moves!

16 Oct 2015

Last weekend Year 7 pupil Robert Tombs travelled up to Oldham to take part in the Silver Plate competition - part of the Delancey National Schools Competition which Witham pupils are annually involved in.

Robert, who is the first  player from Witham to reach this level, played exceptionally well and went into the final round with 3 out of 4 points His opponent for this round was the highest scoring player with 4 points out of 4.

Robert's opponent offered him a draw on 4 occasions, but Robert (needing a win to come joint first) declined, preferring to battle on! Unfortunately even after putting up a very strong performance Robert was checkmated, ultimately finishing on 3 out 5.

A great performance- well done Robert!
